The almanac issue that is still not allowing me to get 100% complete.

and the fact that when I ride the horse at the mansion the entire environment starts to get black "snowflakes".

These things should have never been bugs in the first place, and the fact that they did not fix them yet is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. :mad:

For those children complaining about Ambient music, would you kindly give me a link where Ubisoft officially confirmed there would be ambient music in free roam getting added? Or are you just speculating and getting upset?

The game wouldn't even suit it. That's not the style. The Frontier is designed to be silent so you can hear what's happening, it's just what suits the period. Ezio's time period was full of musical renaissance and all that jazz.

I some what agree, I e-mailed them regarding Connor hiding his face with his hood when being investigated and they said they would address it in the next patch, this one, but that didn't happen... but They did at least fix almost everything, and no the lack of music is good, makes you feel more in touch with the location your in.

To other people pointing out other bugs, I've not seen any of the bugs you make mention of, the only other bug I see is the bug were when you load into an enviroment like black creek and everything is... pixelated and not loading right.... that's the best way i can describe it.

Great news about the patch, but I'm still having a problem in Singleplayer mode with the first convoy being permanently "under attack". There needs to be a way to reset convoys, or the first convoy is permanently unusable for me. I tried submitting a ticket but it didn't really seem to get addressed.

I'm still stuck at 99% completion because I have not received 100% credit for picking up all the almanac pages. I found all the pages and crafted all the items, but for some reason, it won't give me 100% completion. Please fix this bug so I can get the platinum trophy. Thanks.

I cannot disagree with this more. AC1's period and atmosphere was completely the opposite to that of AC2's, and was more similar to AC3's, yet it had ambient music which complimented the world beautifully. Ambient music should be used irrespective of time period/setting.

the_atm, congrats on being a grown up you ****bag. I had this game preordered as early as March 2012. I loved all of the other Assassin's Creed game with the exception of Brotherhood which didn't really do much for me and I was patiently awaiting the release of AC3. I finished the game full sync, all other achievements outside of MP complete except for Completionist which won't complete becuase despite having the Boston UFO mission in my guidebook there is no icon on my map and nothing appears when I do travel to the tree on the hill where the UFO is.

If you had spent 35+ hours playing the game (having a good time I may add) Only to have your 100% achievement stopped by this one mission that is, by the way, an issue for other people too. Wouldn't you be upset? Now take into account that you've contacted Ubisoft about this problem since Nov 2012 and they keep saying "We know about the problem there's a patching coming in Dec....then January" and it's still not fixed meanwhile they keep fixing the MP and rolling out the red carpet for DLC?

I'm sure Ubisoft will eventually fix this issue. If not my only option is to restart a new game from the beginning and hope that the UFO mission works. But don't troll me because I'm frustrated that they're obviously putting future focus into DLC and MP. Yeah I need to grow up. Again congrats on being one of 12 Million sheep you asshat.

[STANDS AND APPLAUDS FEVERISHLY]

As a dude who got jinxed out of his Completionist achievement thanks to the Almanac glitch, and who's had the messaged and tweeted Ubisoft support atleast 10 times about my issue (and others), I think you've got the total right to be pissed off about this patch. I've heard the same nonsense too: "Oh a patch is coming here, and then here, and then here..."

But hey, while you're waiting, why don't you spend a premium on our DLC when we haven't fixed the regular game to begin with? That my friends, is getting hosed. If I have to play through the story again (with no guarantee that everything will work mind you) to pop my Completionist achievement before they release a patch, this will be the LAST Ubisoft game I purchase new. I've spent atleast $500 in Assassin's Creed Limited Edition games, you don't think I deserve it?

02-14-2013, 06:48 PM
This is pathetic. This game was released on October 30, 2012 and after all of the patches, the permanently attacked convoy glitch is still here and the stuck pivots are too!
It's great that you "Removed the ability to hide pivots during pass-throughs and cinematics" but if you don't reset the pivots that are already stuck in them, then that means nothing to me and anyone else that has this issue. Reset the **** pivots and fix the convoy glitch!

First of all the 1st part of your comment is completely irrelevant & has nothing to do with your issue.

Yes they're releasing DLC because another team is dealing with the patches/fixes for the game. These things take time, a lot of time for certain things and even the smallest of bugs can take weeks/months to fix. Add that to the fact other bugs will take priority I.e. crashes, corrupted saves etc and yes it takes them a while to fix a lot of this stuff.

As someone that completed the game 100% on my 1st save (on my 5th now but I've only completed this particular mission twice) I can say I haven't encountered pretty much any of these progress hindering types of bugs, so while they're there, they are rarer than you think. This also makes it harder considering the amount of things that could potentially trigger a bug/glitch (missions in a particular order/ collectables etc) that then means this mission can't be completed.

Yes this patch was mediocre if you play AC3 strictly for SP but this does mean they're still supporting it and I'd suspect they'll be supporting it even further down the line. At least until they release all the DLC packs for this game. Just be patient and try to make sure your posts about this issue is as clear and detailed as possible so they can fix said issue. Cursing at forum members and just generally screaming at Ubi to fix it isn't really helping, unless you give them as much info as possible i.e. things that could've triggered this glitch etc.

It's not going to happen; there IS no ambient music for this game. It doesn't exist. They can't just magically stick music in it, they would have to hire someone to create all-new tracks, which takes way too much time and money, especially since we're talking about doing it after the fact.

but they wouldn't have to create all new tracks, parts of the song 'Welcome to Boston' would fit perfectly with wandering around Boston or New York, and if they can put things as complicated as tree running in the game, I'm pretty sure they could put a bit of music in

the_atm told me to "grow up"

I understand that patches take time and that fixing one issue may cause other issues almost like a butterfly effect within the game.
But from Nov 2012 just a week after the game's release to mid Feb 2013 without a fix?? I have sent Ubisoft multiple tickets describing the issue and gotten repsonses back that they're aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Last time they told me there was a patch coming in Jan 2013...refering to this patch it seems.

I'm glad you were able to play through without any issues but I did have an issue. That single broken mission is keeping me from getting 100% and frankly souring my experience with Ubisoft. I actually enjoyed AC3 very much and while Connor wasn't as developed a character as I would have liked I wouldn't mind if he appeared in the next game. I guess that's not happening now as they're saying new time period/new character.

You can get down off your soapbox now.

Again they prioritize things that need fixing. Hence the reason why in this patch they fixed a issue with the DLC download would cause a save to be corrupted. Plus if this issue was universal for everyone then they would fix it asap but as only a number of people have encountered this issue it's a low priority fix.

"You can get down off your soapbox now."
What because I'm trying to explain to you maybe why this hasn't been fixed yet, whatever.

Hey there Assassins,

We’ve just launched another patch for Assassin’s Creed III which repairs a few remaining single-player issues, many known multiplayer issues and prepares the game data for the release of our first single-player DLC: The Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy!

MULTIPLAYER
MODES
- In Wolfpack, a target doesn’t remain stuck on the ground if the player hosting the game leaves while another player is joining at the same time.
- In Wolfpack, some targets that were not visible to players under certain conditions can now be seen correctly.
- In Wolfpack, the radar is not broken under certain conditions anymore.
- In Artifact Assault, Team members can now correctly score when the initial artifact carrier gets killed under certain conditions.
- In Deathmatch, players no longer have lookalikes NPCs unless they use abilities that create lookalikes.
- In Deathmatch, the game no longer crashes in the New York brewery map for a player who used a Decoy while hiding in a group.
- Some players are no longer stuck in rematch after completing a Simple Deathmatch session on the Saint Pierre map.



Never saw a target stuck in the ground, seen them stuck high above ground where we can not do a ground-finish.
Targets STILL INVISIBLE during Wolfpack. :(

Plenty of look-a-likes during Deathmatch, I can run around and count dozens of NPC's that look like me.
Deathmatch, the "STUN" is not working properly all the time, I sneak up on a pursuer and try to stun, and get killed instead, not even an "Honorable Death" :mad:

I've gotten to the point of not enjoying the multi-player section because of the control issues. The stun opponent works about 20% of the time, even when the player is right on me, and I hit "STUN", nothing happens other than me dying! :mad:

Still no fix for the Boston UFO Frontiersmen mission? I won't give you a cent for dlc until that is fixed.

What is your issue with the UFO mission?? I've played the game 2x's through, and haven't had any problems with the UFO mission.

I guess my concern is that some of the NPC's are showing a little too much skin ...

Case in point, I have it where one of the NPC's was killed by a regular, and her panties is showing through her dress. I pick her up and move her, and I have don't have a dressed NPC, but I have an NPC showing her bloomers! The graphics is just laughable at points.

What about the Bow Glitch? Or the fact there's no ambient music? Seriously? Why don't ubisoft listen to our feedback?!

What Bow glitch?? As for the music, if you are in the woods, you don't need your iPOD to distract you. You need quiet so you can hear the wolves snarling at you.

no fix for stuck on "convoy attacked" glitch
no fix for "pig herder" pen gate closed glitch
no fix for being able to buy unlimited quantity of oak lumber
no fix for encyclopedia glitch

I don't usually mind little glitches, but not being able to finish the game after restarting new game saves and spending WAY too much time on it is ridiculous. Game is broken.

Funny, using PS3, I have all of the "Frontier UFO" and Encyclopedia done. I just can not get the #@^$(*# "Talk to Washington" complete ... as somewhere I missed a chance to talk to him.... Not sure where I missed it, but I missed something somewhere.

The "Pig herder"??? What do you mean the gate closed glitch?? When I did the pig herding mission, the gate was open.

"Unlimited" oak lumber?? Most (if not all) are set at a limit of 10 items. So, if you have 4 you will only be able to purchase 6 to make the 10.

What encyclopedia glitch?? The UFO mission? I finished it without a problem.

I, for one, commend Ubisoft for patching the game at all.

In any event, while it's true, mayhaps, that one miniscule glitch may be preventing you from completing 100%, but there are two things that you need to take into consideration. First, these minor glitches aren't affecting the gameplay or storyline in any way. They're optional, to begin with, and whether or not they're completed have absolutely zero bearing on the rest of the game. Second, these aren't devastating bugs that are affecting every game. Sure, a lot of people are reporting the bugs, but some of you have even said that the glitches vary between playthroughs.

Ubi needs to devote their attention first issues that are affecting everyone, and that are affecting the intended story. Then, once those are fixed, they can move on to the minor things that are affecting a smaller population or are triggered by very specific events. Besides, those are harder to identify and correct; if they focus on those first, their resources cannot be applied to the major problems, and they will have more people angry at them than they do right now.

So just chill out, and try to understand this from Ubi's perspective. Just like you (or like you should, at least), they have priorities, and they need to take care of what's best for everyone before they focus on what's best for some.

P.S.

I also agree that there is really no need for ambient music. It's supposed to be nature, and the goal is for you to enjoy it like you would enjoy nature. (If you need music with you to enjoy nature, you're doing it wrong.)

What is your issue with the UFO mission?? I've played the game 2x's through, and haven't had any problems with the UFO mission.

For some, when we accept the UFO mission, the corresponding icon on the map never appears. Instead you get frontiersmen icons at the 3 tavern locations. I believe it is a glitch when you accept more than one frontiersmen mission at the same time. I am currently in this problem and will not 100% my game until Ubisoft decides to take some initiative and fix this. Others that have had this problem and posted it can be found here:

I had accepted 2 or 3 at a time, and each one worked just fine for me playing on PS3. It is possible that you need to finish the other mission first before it shows up, but again, I had "Bigfoot", "Ghosts", "Cougar", and the "Bear" all going at the same time. I had the "Sea Monster" and "UFO" going at the same time, and still was able to finish.

Thanks for the input. It was more of my own theory about multiple missions causing this, but I have no idea what is the real problem. I have completed all other frontiersmen missions. Any other tips would be helpful...still can't find any answers.

Thats good ubi with the characters not reset when u get limited mode. Can you please fix not taking points from being disconnected from a match. I could be winning easily but get disconnected.
Team modes if u now grade on the whole team, consider if a player that is high rank is on a team of unexperience players, he shouldnt lose points. If your team comes in last but you make it in top 3 you shouldnt lose points for that. Thank you for ac series :D

Disconnects, gotta love them! NOT!! ... It's been happening quite a bit in both ACIII and ACR for me. I get fed-up and go play Uncharted 2 or Batman: AC, it's not a MP, but I can kick some Joker goons arse with no problem :)

It`s not a bug. It was intentional. they ran out of space. the cutscenes use higher res models than normal Gamplay, it allows for better cutscenes, to make these dyes viewable in cutscenes, they`d have to make a high res model for each dye and they were going to do it, except they ran out of physical disc space.

:mad::mad::mad: THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO OUR FEEDBACK!!!!!

you were surprised... because you actually expected them to... CARE! they don't. they got your money and that's all they care about, and they're all starting to be like that too... its not just these fools. the only reason they even bother with patches, is because we wouldn't buy the junk they sell if they didn't. they're not smart enough to make sure it works BEFORE it leaves the work bench. if we stop buying games from the losers that are consistently putting out unplayable games, the problem would get solved alot faster.

I should also mention, on the xbox 360... there is a random freeze bug that was never fixed, it just locks the game and you cant do anything to fix it. oh, and ubisoft just says 'its a known bug' but they make no attempt to fix it as assassin's creed IV is out now and the failures still haven't done anything about it. nice job ubisoft, that's the way to flaunt that fail.
